So You Want to Be a Copywriter?

Recently, an aspiring copywriter asked for some advice on his portfolio. This is what I told him:
Here’s a little feedback, with one caveat: ask five different creative directors for an opinion, and you’ll get five different answers. So take mine with a grain of salt.* Preferably, kosher salt; the rough, coarse kind. Read More

Brand Promise vs. Brand Experience

“You’re about to get Star Treatment”, it says as I’m getting on the plane.
Really?
Is this how you treat a star? First, you clearly let him know where he stands in the pecking order, and it’s not first.  It’s not Platinum, Gold or Silver Elite, either. And if this star wants a seat with extra legroom, well that’s $59.00.  Want to watch an inflight movie? That’s another $6.00. If you want something to eat, choose from the menu and have your credit card ready. Read More

About

We believe anything is possible. Big, bold ideas, executed flawlessly, can truly transform companies, markets and change conventions.

When you’ve been around since 1921, you pretty much see it all. We’ve been a two-person shop and the 8th largest agency in the world. In the meantime, coming up with legendary ideas like “Pork, The Other White Meat” and the Milk Mustache Campaign. But we’re not about to stop there.


Advertising is about so much more than advertising. So we do all that, too.

We call ourselves an advertising and branding agency, so it’s safe to say we do those things really well. But we also do a lot of other things really well too. You want an uber-complicated web application to manage your company’s content? Check. You want data collection to build a super-targeted campaign? Check. You want an ice-cold beer? Check. We’re Bozell. We’re good at a lot of things and we have fun doing them. See everything we do ».


Founded in the roaring 20s.
And still roaring.

Flappers were doing the Charleston and two newsmen were starting one of the first advertising agencies in the Midwest. Founded in 1921 by Leo Bozell and Morris Jacobs, Bozell started as two guys in a single-room office writing promotions to protect a private energy company from the threat of public power.  By 1960, Bozell & Jacobs had offices all around the world, serving clients from Mercury Autos to Mutual of Omaha. But that’s just the beginning. Read more about our history ».


Communicators, innovators, motivators and mind-blowers wanted.

At Bozell, we believe that great ideas aren’t made in a bubble. They’re made in a collaborative environment where anyone and everyone is encouraged to chip in. Which is why every person within our walls plays a key role in getting great results for our clients. So if you’re an idea machine, or want to become one, we might be the perfect place for you. See our current openings ».


“Pay rent for the space
we occupy on this earth.”

That’s a quote from one of our founders, Morris Jacobs. Bozell has a 90-year tradition of giving back to our community. Which is why we encourage our employees to be actively engaged in the city they live in. Whether it’s donating time, talent or money, Bozell and everyone that works here is dedicated to making this world a better place. Read more »
